violencethe most brutal manifestation of discrimination Globallythis form of discrimination is both cause and consequence of gender inequality Two recent incidents in different parts of the world have shaken our collective conscience: the horrific sexual assault and murder of two young womenone in India in Decemberand the other in South Africa in February Countless other cases across the world have gone unreported or under-reported Now is the time to accelerate measures to stamp out all forms of violence against women and girls and push the agenda of gender equality Customtraditioncultureprivacyreligion or so-called honour cannot be invoked to justify violence Neither can states avoid their obligations to preventeliminate and effectively prosecute the perpetrators of such crimes The protection of women in conflict situations and ending impunity in such crimes must be a priority But how successfully can we fight gender violence Is capital punishment an answer Experience in the Philippines has shown that this deterrence measure has limited effect and negative consequences The reinstitution of capital punishment in the 1980s led to more cases of homicide offenders killed the rape victims to take out witnesses Only by eliminating the root causes of inequitysuch as the power imbalance between women and mencan we arrive at any solution The promotion of gender equality and ensuring basic human rights for women and girls must be important goals The EU has put in place comprehensive policies aimed at ensuring women an equal role and rights to participate in politicaleconomic and social life These policies are geared towards helping them reconcile their professional and private livesso that both women and men can achieve equal and genuine economic independence What is still needed is a change in perception: women should be viewed as strong and independent rather than weak and vulnerable?an idea that still prevails Alongside positive measures to empower womensteps to combat violence include improving knowledge and data collectionraising awarenessand legislative action such as the EU laws on human traffickingsexual abuse and exploitation of childrenand on the rights of and protection for all victims of crime The EU also has other pieces of legislation in the pipelineincluding the European Protection Order in civil matterswhich aims to provide protection to the victims of violence across all EU countries The 27 EU member-states have implemented all-encompassinglong-term strategies and action planscombining legislative and non-legislative measures that protect victims and prosecute perpetrators General and specialised support services have also been put in place The European experience shows that violence against women can be partly prevented through various measures For exampleteaching material should include issues such as gender equality and non-violent conflict resolution in interpersonal relationshipsawareness-raising campaigns should be run regularlytreatment programmes must be set up for the perpetrators of domestic violence and for sex offendersand the media as well as the private sector should be roped in to eradicate gender stereotypes and promote mutual respect But the key lies in changing attitudesgender roles and stereotypes that make violence against women acceptable This must start from a young ageat school but also at home We cannot expect boys to change their attitude to girls and women unless they see them as equalsworthy of respect Apart from schoolsvisual mediaespecially filmstelevision serialssongs and awareness-raising initiatives by non-governmental organisations that promote womens rightscan catalyse a change in mindsets Here in Indiapromoting gender equality is a priority for the EU The EU and its member states currently support more than 30 projects implemented by non-governmental organisations that address girls educationskills development and sexual and reproductive health These concerns are also an integral part of the millennium development goals They arein facta condition for the achievement of all the MDGs Howeverwhile there has been significant progress in the area of primary educationresults in the fields of employment and political empowerment are less encouraging While lawsconstitutional rights and the justice system constitute one necessary strand of the campaign for gender equalityanother strand is positive action that helps womenwhether it is through educationtraining or other forms of empowermentto be aware of and fight for their own rights A third and equally necessary strand is to work with boys and menencouraging them to play an active role in the campaign and see gender equality as their responsibility too Only by pushing all three with equal vigour can we make significant progress towards the goals of eliminating discrimination and achieving gender equality The writer is ambassador
